The AcuRite 01208M Complete Wireless High Definition Color Weather Station may be used as a stand-alone weather station that displays the temperature, humidity, wind speed, wind direction, rainfall and more. When connected to Wi-Fi, weather forecasts for today and tomorrow are downloaded from Dark Sky. Dark Sky is one of the most accurate sources of hyperlocal weather information. It is backed by a wide range of weather data sources, which are aggregated together to provide the most accurate forecast possible for a given location. With down-to-the-minute forecasts, youll know exactly when conditions will change so you can plan your day. If the weather station is not connected to Wi-Fi, the forecast is generated from the weather data transmitted from the outdoor weather sensor that uses patented Self-Calibrating Technology to provide a personal weather forecast of 12 to 24-hour weather conditions.

The AcuRite 01208M color display may be connected to a Wi-Fi router (router not included) to wirelessly transmit and share your weather data with Weather Underground. Weather Underground is one of the most popular weather networks in the world! No wires or confusing software required.

The High Definition TFT color display features a vivid screen that can be viewed from any angle. The display allows effortless setup and navigation for viewing in-depth weather conditions or data. View current conditions, historical conditions and high/low records. View a snapshot of today's and previous day's high and low records. Concerned when the temperature falls below or rises above a pre-defined temperature? The AcuRite 01208M display has got you covered, programmable alarms may be set for many measurable conditions. This display can be programmed for auto-dim and sleep modes for nighttime viewing. You may add a lightning detector sensor to detect lightning srikes up to 25 miles and an estimated distance to the latest strike.

The outdoor PRO+ Integrated Multi-Sensor is completely wireless and contains a self-emptying rain collector for measuring rainfall, temperature/humidity sensor, anemometer and wind vane. The anemometer measures wind speed and the wind vane measures wind direction. The PRO+ Integrated Multi-Sensor is battery powered and features dual solar panels for running an internal aspirating fan. The internal fan will assist in drawing ambient air through to reduce the heating effects of solar radiation, resulting in a more accurate air temperature measurement. The patent-pending wireless outdoor sensor features five different technologies in one easy-to-mount unit.


Note: We do carry magnetic compasses to help you orient your anemometer to true north. Those can be located under the "Accessories" tab. For more information on set up, please visit the anemometer page on our WeatherShack education center.

3 stars Good system, terrible instructions
It took 3 days, the internet, you tube, and an IT guy to correctly set up this system. The books are terrible, as well as being incomplete. The system does everything I wanted it to do, I just wish it had not cost another $75 for professional installation.

3 stars Unit seems good, a little disappointed
The unit does not have a battery back up if power is lost for more than a few minutes it looses info on the display

5 stars I got what I thought I was getting
I've had a Acurite Temp and Anemometer setup for many years. Worked great and very pleased with it. For Father's Day I was told by my Bride to "Buy yourself a new weather station". How could I refuse? Truly, the only thing this weather station does NOT do is send data to Acurite proper. Turns out I do not miss that. Setup to send to Weather Underground is very simple and works 24 hours a day every few seconds. I did not take the time to calibrate the rain gauge because I use a CoCoRaHS rain gauge for my daily reporting to the network. However, the rain gauge on the 01208M will tell me "when" the rain happened, which is a bonus for the observations I send. The sensor itself is high-impact plastic and I expect that it would withstand several golf ball hail strikes. But if it were wind-driven baseball hail, all bets would be off. The anemometer cups have a little plastic "give" so I expect that would survive quite a bit of abuse. The outdoor sensor is not heavy. I metal pipe of the correct diameter will hold it in place nicely. Being only 5 days into its use, I'm very please with the value of the sensor. I would wish for a larger display, and may spring for a new one at some point, but for the most part I follow the data as it streams online at W/U.

4 stars Good, solid product...except
The Acurite equipment worked great, once I realized the Weathershack provided, lithium batteries, that were not needed where I live, were flat-dead. If you live where it gets hot, and not very cold, don't get the lithium batteries. If you live where gets cold, get your lithiums elsewhere. Email to customer service has not been responded to yet, but, fingers crossed
